"My wife and I, two 16 year old boys and two 13 year old girls stayed here from 6/27-7/4.
First of all the pros of this condo: 1) the cleaning crew for this condo does a very good job, 2) John and the rental company were very responsive to our requests, 3) the beds in the bedrooms were very comfortable, 4) the kitchen appliances and the washer are nice and work well, 4) the location and view is very nice
Now the cons: 1) the pullout sofa is useless and should not be listed as an option for people to sleep on, unless they're masochists. The mattress is very thin and the coils are very noticeable. The frame for the mattress is not very supportive and leans toward the foot of the bed. This needs to be replaced or taken out of the condo description, 2) be aware that this condo does not supply beach towels, so if you're not from Florida, it's a pain to have to bring them with you. John said it's because people take them and he doesn't know of any other condo that supplies them...we've rented houses and condos all over the U.S. and Caribbean and have never been to one that HASN'T supplied them, 3) there were no beach chairs or cooler available either until we asked the rental agency. They contacted John and he had them purchase 3 chairs and a small cooler. Again, he said it's because people leave the stuff on the beach. I told him that, in order to solve that problem, he needs to charge the people for what isn't returned. After all, this is a "beach condo" and again we've never rented a beach condo or home where this stuff, and more, weren't supplied, 4) Also be aware that the rental agency only supplies four rolls of toilet paper for your time there (what they call a "starter pack"), you have to supply the rest...as well as your own laundry detergent, spices, condiments as there's nothing left from previous people (again unlike any other condo or house we've rented.), 5) Door to master bath toilet/shower area gets stuck if you close it all the way, 6) Screen on lanai needs to be replaced/repaired as it has several tears in it. 7) Dryer is very slow to dry clothes.
I know this makes the condo sound bad, but it really isn't. It's a very nice, very clean condo in a really good location with a responsive owner. You just need to be aware of not really having a pullout sofa for sleeping and that there are things that aren't included."
